017 - How to Help a Loved One with Video Game Addiction w/ Cam Adair and Nadja Streiter
It's one thing struggling with video game addiction yourself, but what can you do when you see someone you love destroying their life with gaming?
Maybe they're still living at home, struggling to get a job, overweight and are losing the will to live.
No matter how much you want to help them, the painful truth is that you can't convince someone to change. You can give them all the information you want, but it's not going to help them. If anything, it'll just make them resent you.
So, what can you do?
We designed our program, Reclaim, for one purpose: To help parents and loved ones to foster a deep understanding of video game addiction and learn how to effectively treat the disorder in someone close to them.
Over 4 modules, 40 lessons, worksheets, interviews and videos - you'll gain all of the knowledge you need to tackle the modern problem of video games once and for all.
The program was designed in conjunction with licensed therapist, parents coach and program director at Game Quitters - Nadja Streiter. Nadja learnt first hand the effects of video game addiction in her own children, so you can be sure that this program was written specifically with you in mind. We understand what you're going through, but it doesn't need to be like that forever.
